.VN crosses 400,000 registrations

The Vietnamese ccTLD, which used to be free till January this year, has seen steady growth in usage

The Vietnam Internet Network Information Center (VNNIC) recently announced that as of April 2017, more than 400,000 .VN domain names are being maintained by them.

They add that in recent years, the annual growth rate of .VN has always been more than 10%, with new registrations growing at a similar rate as well. They also claim that in the first three months of 2017 since registrations became paid, there were more than 15,000 new domain names registered by organizations and businesses.

Mr. Le Nam Trung, Deputy Director General of VNNIC said:

The number of 400,000 domain names does not reflect the potential of Internet community in Vietnam, but is significantly contributed by the effort of both VNNIC and the .VN registrars.

VNNIC say that they aim to surpass other gTLDs in the near future by introducing various measures such as improving the quality of Registrar services, improving their customer service, expanding VAS offerings and enhancing transparency in the legal of .VN and other gTLDs.
